Testing Mpix vs. Bay Photo...
Nov 9, 2009

Let me begin by saying that I currently have a pro account with Smugmug, and use Bay Photo for my print lab. Wonderful customer service, wonderful quality.

Recently I've had an opportunity to do a free trial with Zenfolio.

Wasn't looking to switch my pro account to ZF, but now I'm not so sure. Was actually looking for a decent site for hosting personal and family images at a better price than Smug offers.

Out of curiosity, I just placed print orders to Bay via my Smug site as well as orders to Mpix via the ZF site. Wondering how the 2 labs will print these. : ) Prints should be here in a few days, can't wait to see how they look. Both Bay and Mpix will do the color correction on the prints.

I've always liked Smugmug, but I have to say, at least for me, navigating ZF's shopping cart was simplicity itself. Much better than expected. I think my customers might agree.

I wish I could get the best features of both Smug and ZF in one package, LOL!

Smug wins on customization features alone. But I have to say, ZF wins on price and ease of use. Just curious if the print quality is comparable, the customer service seems to be so far.

Cheers,

DL
